About the Role
Senior Local Area Coordinator – Empower People with Disability!
• Key leadership role in helping to improve the lives of people with disability
• Ongoing positions available in Bayside Peninsula area
• $79,170 – $83,230 per annum plus superannuation, plus allowance in lieu of vehicle (attractive salary packaging options available)
The Brotherhood of St Laurence drives change that promotes a compassionate and fair society where everyone has a sense of belonging. The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), administering the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) roll-out is partnering with the Brotherhood of St Laurence to deliver Local Area Coordination (LAC) services in the Bayside Peninsula area.
LAC is pivotal in the NDIS, providing planning coordination and capacity building support for people with disability to maximise their choice and control over the services they receive. This role also supports people with disability to access mainstream services, regardless of NDIS eligibility, and to increase our community’s capacity to be accessible to people with disability.
You have a proven track record in developing and leading highly capable teams to deliver crucial services to the community. Highly knowledgeable around disability principles and practices, you are a subject matter expert on one or two key areas of disability and know how to develop the capacity of the community to be inclusive. You thrive in an environment of accountability, where measures are also used to drive genuine improvement in services. Making a difference to the way disability services are delivered is more than a job – it is a passion. Don’t miss out on these outstanding opportunities at the centre of some of the biggest changes in the disability sector in Australia’s history!
People with a lived experience of disability, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
